+1 from me for using Polymorphist's Jest.... wouldn't have thought to try that one in my Illusions deck. may have to... how does it fair for you?

"And Just Like That... They Were Gone" is my illusion deck if you wanted to check it out.

@Kcin It works out decently; i'm a huge fan of combat tricks. There are some changes I'd like to make's been a little while since i messed with this. off the top of my head i'd like to get some Serum Visions in place of other stuff.

You might want to compare Serum Visions to Anticipate before you pick one. One mana more, but instant speed and your choice of three cards to draw. I also love the good ol' frogstorm; I still wish I had a good way to -1/-1 the whole board or deal one damage to everything in mono-blue to follow up, but I guess one deck can't have it all...

If you want some super-draw though, consider Ideas Unbound. As long as you can play all three cards on your turn, you lose nothing and get a massive tempo boost for two mana. Great as a one or two-of, as it can jumpstart you in a stalled game and peel away a land bubble in the worst case.

You may want to switch out your cantrip Think Twice for Thought Scour. You draw cards more cheaply and you can get your Jace's Phantasms in business earlier.

I also have an illusions deck and pretty similar but I would suggest taking out at least one Illusory Angel because for me they are very often dead cards if I don't have at least 4 mana and a one drop.
